When I was leaving, I decided to stop in a parking space along Parkerville Road to see if I could get an even closer photo of the goose. While I was taking photos, I heard an interesting scratching sound coming from the tops of the Norway Spruce trees across the street. It was a flock of at least ten WHITE-WINGED CROSSBILLS!! What an awesome and unexpected surprise! The lighting was bad and the distance was bad, so I didn't get nice photos like I did when I went to Salisbury Beach State Reservation to see them, but to see them so close to home while not looking for them was a thrill! And I had my binoculars with me, so I had good sightings with them!

What a lunch break!
